Travel company Sabre is replacing its more expensive electronic data interchange system with a web-based solution using tools from SeeBeyond.

The EDI system is currently used for connecting to airlines, hotels and other suppliers, but Sabre wants to save on connectivity charges and build more flexibility into its systems by adopting web services.

The company’s various subsidiaries, which include Travelocity.com, are ditching the 15-year-old EDI system by building a web services solution using Integrated Composite Application Network (ICAN) tools from SeeBeyond.

Sabre is currently conducting a pilot project by connecting to selected suppliers using the new system.

SeeBeyond is being acquired by Sun Microsystems.
